Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Bring a cool drink if you like and join us at our August 8th Guild meeting. We will be treated to a trunk show by pattern company Bloomin' Minds. The meeting will start at 7:00 at Redeemer Lutheran Church on S. Lakeport St.
(The program was originally going to be the Superior Threads dvd about thread tension, but we'll save that for a later date).
Check out the Bloomin' Minds patterns at: http://bloominminds.com
Be sure to check the current newsletter for information about the Festival of Trees project that our Guild is involved in this year (and every even year). The deadline for turning in your ornaments for the Guild tree is November 14th.
We'll see you at the meeting!
Monday, July 11th, will be our annual summer potluck at the Guild meeting. Our meeting will start a little earlier, so be there and ready for some excellent food at 6:30pm.
Please bring your own plate and silverware and a dish to share. The current newsletter gives the outline of who brings desserts, main dishes, or salads (so we don't end up with tables full of desserts!).
Come join us Monday the 11th at 6:30pm!
Please join us on June 13th at 7:00 pm at Redeemer Lutheran Church for our June Guild meeting. Our Guest Speaker will be Ginny Gustad from the Shanty Stitchers shop in Beresford, SD. Ginny will be doing a presentation on hardanger, a traditional form of Norwegian embroidery, often called "whitework embroidery". Ginny will also be bringing items from her embroidery/quilt shop to sell, so don't forget your spending money.
Also, try to attend the Omaha Guild's quilt show on June 23-25th, as it's always a good one. Here is a link to the quilt show webpage: http://www.omahaquiltersguild.org/quilt-show/
Check our current newsletter for other activities and get-togethers our Guild is involved in, and we will see you on June 13th!
